Topic: DMX PADS
HI
I am looking at getting virtual DJ to send messages via OS2L protocol to Sunlite Studio which I have seen is possible.

From what I can see there are only 8 pads available on virtual DJ does that mean I am limited to only 8 cues?

Eg I have a magic show and it has about 30 different lighting cues.
I would love to be able to set the cue points in virtual DJ to trigger the cues in Sunlite so it's an easier job rather than jumping between two computers but obviously, if this is limited to 8 cues it will not be possible.

Thanks
RJP

Nah there's no limit to the number of cues. Use the poi editor to set them.

I believe OP means lighting cues, not hotcues.

No, you are not limited to 8 Pads. Lots of options here.
Option 1. Create additional Custom Pad Pages (New Page from Pads Editor) and have 8 os2l actions on one, another 8 in some other etc.
Option 2 (a bit advanced), is to use Param1 to toggle or cycle a variable (which represents a sub-page) and then each one of the Pads should have actions like..
var 'myvar' 1 ? os2l_button "scene9" : os2l_button "scene1" (for 2 sub-pages)
Option 3 : 16 Pads per page. Set sixteenPadsmode setting to "On" (from VDJ Settings->OPTIONS tab), then the Pad Editor will have 16 Pads to edit and the skin (at least on the default), will have an option button to select bank 1 to 8 or 9 to 16.

If you need further help for Option 2, let us know.
